Between the arrival of autumn and the Halloween holiday, October is a festive time of year. But despite all the excitement, there are many people dealing with serious personal struggles that are not easily alleviated. This October, PGi made a commitment to help those who are fighting to get through tough times by supporting Suicide Awareness Month. PGi’s Customer Care team launched its Smile Grams initiative, which gave our employees the opportunity to send a “Smile Gram” to a fellow co-worker.
Upon purchasing a Smile Gram, PGi employees would then write a heartfelt, personalized message to be delivered to a fellow co-worker along with an irresistible clay smiley face to remind them that they are loved and supported.
This week, Smile Grams brought 2,600 smiles to PGi’s Colorado and Kansas offices. Additionally, PGi was able to donate $2,600 to Suicide Prevention Partnership Pikes Peak with the proceeds gathered through Smile Grams.
A big thanks to PGi’s Customer Care Team for sharing the joy of a smile amongst our employees and helping spread suicide awareness. If you or someone you know is struggling through a difficult time and need assistance please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 or visit suicidepreventionlifeline.org for resources and live online chat.
